How To Paraphrase

Brock University has made this brief interactive tutorial that offers an excellent explanation of how one could go about paraphrasing ideas.

In your academic studies you will be required to take ideas from your research and integrate these ideas into your research papers and essays by paraphrasing (and citing) the author’s work.

This tutorial is very easy to follow and will define what paraphrasing is, offer examples, and walk you through the five steps of paraphrasing:

(1) Read the Source Passage Several Times

(2) Outline the Passage

(3) Restate Information

(4) Accuracy

(5) Cite Appropriately & Integrate Paraphrase Effectively
